I’m just happy to be ok

This is the best way to show how angry I was six years ago, while I was still in the first stages of my recovery and I saw no way out.

Two days of independence

This weekend I was finally trusted to spend two nights at home by myself. It wasn't safe for me to stay alone before in case I had a seizure, but being over three years seizure free, I earned the trust to spend a weekend by myself. I wasn't alone, I had my dogs. I spent … Continue reading Two days of independence

Get support and give support

I think one of the many things that can help you heal from whatever situation you're going through is charing your experience and talking to other people. You never know how many others are out there going through the same thing and are ready to share their experience with you and help. I was reminded … Continue reading Get support and give support

Three years!!!!!!!!!!

I just stood there

I thought I was over the whole "crossing the street" thing, but nope, I can't do it. I was about to cross the street when I just froze on the sidewalk. I couldn't do it.

We are unstoppable 

So look at what I found today:  I think it was just sitting around in that Hobby Lobby waiting for me to find it and of course I had to have it. The only thing better than that was finding another one that said María but that's asking for too much.  Finding that just made … Continue reading We are unstoppable

Music can change your brain
